Support Us: DeGowin Blood Center

Organize a Successful Blood Drive

The UI DeGowin Blood Center relies on a wide variety of businesses, churches, schools, community groups and members of the University community to host blood drives.  If you have a group that is interested in hosting a blood drive, please contact our Blood Drive Coordinator, 1-319-356-8327.

Volunteer Opportunities

Refreshment Area Host

Community volunteers serve refreshments to donors after they've donated at area blood drives. As a refreshment host, volunteers help donors feel comfortable and appreciated as they rest the required post donation time. In addition, hosts educate donors about automated donations and help restock refreshments.

Telerecruitment Volunteer

Telerecruitment Volunteers come to the Donor Center to call donors, reminding them that it is time to schedule another donation.

All volunteers at UI Hospitals & Clinics must attend volunteer training through Volunteer Services.
